Leamington Open Air Burn Permits

Default Interior

Open air burning within the Municipality of Leamington is regulated by an Open Air Burning By-law. A burn permit is required for all open air burning within the Municipality of Leamington. Whether you are having a small backyard campfire or clearing your property of brush, a permit is required.

Leamington residents who require outdoor burning privileges can purchase permits online through the Municipality’s website at leamington.ca/burning.

Burn permits will require 2-3 business days for processing, and first time applicants will require an inspection prior to approval.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Municipality has been accepting expired burn permits. Beginning September 1, 2021, the Municipality will no longer accept expired burn permits and residents will be required to re-apply for a burn permit, if they have not already done so.

Residents who have questions about open air burning or are concerned about the size of the burn pile, should contact Leamington Fire Services by phone at 519-326-6291.

Any person who wishes to make a complaint regarding an open air burn should contact Fire Dispatch at 519-326-4431.
